She specializes in artistic 3D areola tattoos, for breast cancer reconstruction patients, and she has seen first-hand many of the financial struggles that people face.
She also saw the opportunity to honor the memory of her brother, whom she lost to esophageal cancer, while enriching the lives of others in the community through her organization.
"The happiest people, in the world, are those who are helping others. I am proud to be able to assist people who have been affected by breast cancer," Wescott said.
She has worked with over 18 plastic and reconstructive surgeons, in Connecticut, along with doctors in neighboring states.
The fundraiser's minimum donation is $5 per person. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event.
The event is from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the restaurant, Brick Walk Promenade, 1229 Post Road, Fairfield.
